The sight of Manchester City in the transfer market has been a rare occurrence this summer - but Blues skipper Vincent Kompany believes Carlos Tevez is just like a new signing.

After causing so many problems last term, Tevez seems to be a much more settled figure nowadays and looks like the player who became such a Blues hero after his move from Manchester United in 2009.

"Carlos is recognised by everyone as one of the best strikers in the world," said Kompany. "People talk about new signings but having Carlos at his best level, which he wasn't last season because he was away for most of it, is just like one. I still say we have improved."
